Types of Product Defects

Types of Product Defects

Goldberg & Loren, product liability attorneys, recognize the negative impact of faulty products on consumers. Three types of product defects – design, manufacturing, and marketing – can result in a products liability lawsuit.

Goldberg & Loren understands the complex nature of product liability lawsuits and the types of defects that can cause harm to consumers. If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective product, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for help. We will work tirelessly to hold manufacturers accountable and secure the compensation you deserve.

Design Defect

At Goldberg & Loren, we understand the importance of product safety and how design defects can pose serious risks to consumers. A design defect occurs when a flaw in the product’s design renders it unreasonably dangerous for its intended use.

Examples of products that may have a design defect include cars with faulty airbags, appliances with exposed wiring, and playground equipment with inadequate safety measures. These products may function as they were intended, but due to a flaw in their design, they pose a potential danger to the user.

When a product is considered unsafe for its intended use due to a design defect, it becomes the responsibility of the product manufacturer. Under product liability law, manufacturers have a duty to ensure their products are reasonably safe for use and to warn consumers of any potential hazards associated with their use.

Design defects can have serious consequences, causing harm or injury to those who use the product.

With our knowledge and expertise in product liability law, we work tirelessly to hold manufacturers accountable for their unsafe products. 

Manufacturing Defect

Unlike design defects, which are inherent in an entire line of products, a manufacturing defect occurs due to a flaw in the construction or production of an individual item.

Manufacturing defects can arise from a variety of issues, including errors in the assembly process or substandard materials. These defects may not be immediately apparent upon inspection, making them particularly dangerous. For example, a motorcycle missing brake pads or a bottle of medicine mixed improperly can cause serious injury and even death.

Our experienced product liability lawyers will hold the responsible party accountable and fight for your rights.

We understand the physical and emotional toll of a manufacturing defect injury. That’s why we offer compassionate and personalized service to every client. Contact us today for a free consultation and take the first step towards justice.

Marketing Defect

As product liability lawyers, we understand the devastating consequences of a marketing defect. This occurs when a product’s marketing or advertising is misleading or inadequate, leading consumers to use or handle a product in an unsafe manner. A marketing defect can result in serious injuries or death, as well as property damage.

False advertising is an example of a marketing defect. If a product is advertised to have specific features or benefits but fails to deliver on those promises, this can be considered false advertising. Inadequate labeling or instructions can also be a marketing defect, as consumers may not be fully informed about the proper use or handling of a product.

Manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their marketing and advertising accurately represent their products, and that proper labeling and instructions are provided. If a marketing defect leads to harm or injury, manufacturers may be held legally responsible. Victims of a marketing defect may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other expenses.

Our experienced product liability lawyers can help. We will fight to hold the manufacturer accountable and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Don’t hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.

Around 2019, a common brand of weed killer was at the center of numerous product liability claims over the labeling and warnings, or to be specific the lack of such. It was found to contain a chemical that causes certain cancers.

The company failed to list the chemical correctly and no warning was included on the label advising users of the potential health risks of using the product. While this class-action lawsuit is still being litigated, juries have awarded over $2 billion dollars in damages. [1]

Legal Liability for Defective Products

We believe that manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and retailers have a moral responsibility to ensure the products they put on the market are safe and free from defects that could cause harm to consumers. 

There are different types of product liability, including strict liability, negligence, and breach of warranty.

Strict product liability means that the manufacturer, distributor, or seller can be held responsible for harm caused by a product defect, even if they were not aware of the defect.

Negligence occurs when the responsible party fails to act with reasonable care, such as by not testing a product properly.

Breach of warranty refers to a failure to fulfill a promise or guarantee related to the product.

Factors that contribute to a product liability lawsuit can include inadequate warning labels, failure to recall a product, or defects in the manufacturing or design process.

In these cases, victims may be entitled to compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses.

If you or someone you know has been harmed by a defective product, contact Goldberg & Loren today for compassionate legal assistance. Let us help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Most Common Injuries in Product Liability Claims

Goldberg & Loren has seen first-hand the devastating injuries that can result from defective products. Some of the most common injuries that plaintiffs experience when filing a product liability claim include burns, lacerations, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and death.

Victims of defective products may be able to recover monetary damages through product liability claims. These damages may include reimbursement for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related expenses. In some cases, punitive damages may also be awarded to punish the responsible party for their reckless or intentional actions.

Our compassionate team at Goldberg & Loren is here to help you navigate the legal process and maximize your recovery. Contact us today for a free consultation.

In the United States, 11.7 million people visited emergency rooms in 2021 as a direct result of injuries resulting from the use of consumer products. [2]

When Can I File a Claim for Product Liability

In order to file a claim, it is important to be aware of the statute of limitations, which varies depending on the state and the type of claim. This time limit restricts the amount of time a victim has to file a legal complaint. To prove product liability, it must be shown that the product was not safe for its intended use and that the defect caused harm.

This means that the design of the product may have been flawed, the manufacturing process could have resulted in defects, or the warning label or instructions were not adequate.

Rules for who can sue under product liability laws have shifted over time. Previously, only those who were in the privity of contract with the manufacturer could sue. Now, anyone who could have been damaged by the product is able to file a claim.

Product liability insurance does not cover all incidents. For example, intentional damage or damage that occurs outside the intended use of the product would not be covered.

The average annual cost for product liability insurance is about $1,200 for small businesses in the manufacturing, retail and wholesale industries with revenue of less than $1 million, according to an analysis of rate quotes by AdvisorSmith, a website that reviews small-business insurance and other products. [3]

Why these Claims Require a Qualified Lawyer

Pursuing a product liability claim may seem like a straightforward process, but the reality is that it can be incredibly complex.

One of the most challenging aspects of a product liability claim is demonstrating the cause and extent of the injuries. You will need to provide evidence showing that the product was defectively designed or manufactured, as well as how those defects directly caused your injuries. A qualified lawyer will have experience and knowledge in gathering evidence to build a strong case.

Identifying responsible parties in the chain of distribution is another factor. This can include the manufacturer, distributor, or even the retailer who sold the product.

Proving which party is responsible for the defect can be challenging, and a qualified lawyer will have the expertise to properly investigate and hold the right parties accountable.

Goldberg & Loren understands the complexities involved in product liability claims, and we are dedicated to helping victims seek justice. Our experienced attorneys can guide you through the process, gather evidence, and negotiate a settlement that provides the compensation you deserve.

If you have been injured due to a dangerous or defective product, don’t hesitate to contact a qualified personal injury lawyer for help. With our experience and expertise, we can help you hold responsible parties accountable for their actions and secure the compensation you need to move forward.

Compensation From Product Liability Claim

Monetary damages are the most common type of compensation sought in a product liability claim. This includes expenses such as medical bills and lost wages, which can have a significant impact on one’s financial well-being. 

Punitive damages may also be awarded, which are intended to punish the liable party for their negligence or misconduct. These damages are meant to serve as a deterrent and discourage similar behavior in the future. Actual damages may also be awarded, which aim to restore the victim to their prior financial state before the injury occurred.

The amount of compensation you receive will depend on factors such as the severity of your injuries, the impact they have had on your life, and the degree of liability held by the responsible parties. It’s important to work with a knowledgeable product liability attorney who will fight for your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
